#ScienceSunday: While short by our standards, #polarbears are considered long-lived animals. In the wild, polar bears live an average 15 to 18 years, although biologists have tagged a few bears in their early 30s. In captivity, some long-lived bears reach their mid- to late 30s.

#ScienceSunday: #Polarbears are well adapted for the #Arctic climate. Their feet are furred and covered with small bumps called papillae to keep them from slipping on ice. Their sense of smell is powerful for detecting seals. And their powerful claws can haul out a 40-90 kg (150-200 lb) seal from the water for dinner. #SaveOurSeaIce #PolarBearScience

#ScienceSunday ––– #Polarbear cubs are born in November or December in snow caves called maternity dens. After feeding heavily in April or May, females that have mated dig a den in late October or early November. Most choose den sites in snowdrifts along mountain slopes or hills near the shore. Some dig their dens in snowdrifts on the sea ice. #polarbearscience #saveourseaice
